BOYS VARSITY SOCCER
EHTHS took to the road on Thursday traveling to Hammonton to play its final Division game. This game would prove to have huge implications, the Division Champion, Power Points and a possible first round bye in the CAL tournament were all up for grabs. The Eagles proved mighty as Nathan Biersbach fired a missile from 23 yards out early in the First Half. The Eagles had several opportunities, but held to only one goal in regulation. EHTHS goalie, Brett Barnes was stellar in his performance, he made 10 miraculous saves throughout the game, including a saved PK early in the second half. Barnes kept EHTHS in the game with his play, however, Hammonton was relentless and with only 6 minutes left in the second half, they found the equalizer 1-1. The Eagles would have to earn the victory the hard way, in a Golden Goal Over TIme. With only 16 seconds left in the second OT, Hammonton fouled EHTHS inside the 18 yard box, resulting in a red card ejection for Hammonton and a Penalty Shot for EHTHS. Nathan Biersbach stepped to the line, glanced at the remaining 16 seconds on the board and buried his PK into the right panel. The Eagles showed grit and determination in the victory. The Eagles also repeated as American Division Champions, should be a #1 seed in the CAL tournament and earned a lot of power points. The Eagles host Washington Twp Saturday afternoon at 1pm in the first round of the South Jersey Soccer Coaches Association tournament.
The Eagles lost to Oakcrest High School 23-14. Leon Ellis scored a rushing and receiving touchdown. Joey Martin added two successful extra point tries.
